On Your Mark! Get Set! Sweat!

Posted on

Today kicks off the 4th round of the 70 Days of Sweat.  For those of you not familiar, this is a more…temperate and reasonable challenge than NaNoWriMo.  The goal is to write 60-100k in 70 days (in this case, 77, as we have 7 “free” days built into the calendar this round, which is a […]
